The divine in me bows to the divine in you.
The quality of our lives depends on how we respond to the light that comes from others. It beckons to us– this light– to see them as they are, to respect, to revere, to embrace, and above all– to love. It seems to come naturally for us to resist this light and what it asks us to do. We are naturally self-absorbed. But, when we’re soft and sensitive and other-minded we can sense that light in human beings, in nature, in God.
I think I’m starting to understand what Jesus meant when he said the “he who will save his life will lose it, and he who will lose his life will find it.” When we yield to the light that beckons us to love and serve we shed our self-centered motivations, the pretenses we create in trying to prove we really are what we think we are, and our own authentic divine nature can shine through. In losing our self-centeredness, motivated by honest love, we become our true selves.
Relationships are everything.
